“We moved here about 13 years ago and were only the third family to own the property. Over the years we have been delighted to update this wonderful home and hope that the next incumbents will appreciate and enjoy everything it has to offer. We fell in love with the location as it is quiet, tranquil and off the beaten track but it is still only about five minutes to Whitstable and a minute to the Thanet Way for London and Canterbury. We love the surrounding countryside and views as well as the wonderful wildlife that frequents the garden. We shall be very sad to leave but we need to move for family reasons and just wish we could pick the house up and take it with us.


There is a Co-op nearby for immediate essentials and views over the North Sea from nearby Victory Wood, one of the Woodland Trust sites. Here you can enjoy a taste of history as the wood was planted in 2005 to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. It includes sculptures and groves representing each ship of the British fleet.


The house is very close to the Thanet Way for Canterbury, the Thanet towns and London while from Whitstable station you can be in London within an hour an a quarter. Whitstable is a quaint and charming town with a variety of excellent bars, restaurants and individual shops as well as the harbour where you can buy the freshest of seafood.
